!The Movie

* AdaptationDisplacement: The film is better known than the original novel.
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: This was one of Music/JerryGoldsmith's major movie scores.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The scene with Box the robot doesn't quite fully qualify, as it explains what happened to the other people who escaped, but it still seems quite gratuitously weird.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Logan and Jessica re-enter the city by diving into the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Worth_Water_Gardens Ft. Worth Water Gardens pool]], where twenty-eight years later four people drowned.
* InferredHolocaust: So, with the [[spoiler: city destroyed, how will the people survive when they can't fend for themselves]]?
* {{Narm}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YsTKL7L6-o This]] "NOOOOO! Don't go in there! You don't have to die, well no one has to die at 30! You can live, LIIIIIIVE!"
** "All frooooozeeeeeeen!"
* NightmareFuel: Box, the cheerful-voiced caretaker robot in the ice cave, cheerfully informs Logan and Jessica that "It's my job... to freeze you!" Did we mention he's immune to blasts from Logan's gun?
** Carrousel itself. It doesn't look so much like people happy to reach "renewal" as people trying to claw their way out - and then they explode to the cheers of the crowd. Later, Logan finds out that [[spoiler:no one ever renews - then you realize that those people are dead, dead, dead.]]
* SpecialEffectsFailure:
** The small scale of the city models are painfully obvious and unintentionally make it look like a model train set. The opening at least [[ObscuredSpecialEffects tries to hide the scale with an out of focus lens]], but it only helps so much, and the rest of the film shows the model sets plain and clear.
** During one shot of the Carrousel scene, you can clearly see the wires holding some of the people in the air.

!The TV Series

* FridgeLogic: Why would a force of practical assassins need a weapon with a stun setting? A Sandman's job is to kill Runners so why would they ever need to NOT shoot to kill?
** FridgeBrilliance: Considering Jessica's character demonstrates there is an ''organized'' Runner's movement, a stun setting would be useful if you'd like to interrogate someone or use them as bait to catch their fellow subversives. It's also a nod to the books where a Sandman's pistol had several settings, including a "tangler" for live capture. Sandman were not just for killing Runners - they were the society's law enforcement. Unless you were on Last Day and trying to run, they were no more or less a threat than an average beat cop.
* Not-quite-as-SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The pilot and three other episodes were scored by Laurence Rosenthal, who is probably most well-known for ''Series/YoungIndianaJones''. His main theme sounds like the Disco version of [[Film/ANewHope Princess Leia's theme]] punctuated by blasts from the spaceship-gun in ''VideoGame/{{Asteroids}}''.
** Film Score Monthly [[https://www.screenarchives.com/title_detail.cfm/ID/3842/LOGANS-RUN-TV-Series-1977/ released the soundtrack album for the series]] (and the complete score for the movie as well).

!The Book
* HilariousInHindsight: Anyone who has played either of the first two ''VideoGame/BioShock'' games should find the description of Molly, the decaying city on the ocean floor, rather familiar.
